Join Missouri Humanities and the Lebanon-Laclede County Library on Tuesday, June 18 at 6pm for "Native Ground: The First People of Missouri Before Statehood" with Distinguished Professor of History at Columbia College of Missouri, Dr. Brad Lookingbill.
During the presentation, Dr. Lookingbill will explain that long before the Europeans arrived and claimed dominion over an imagined wilderness, the original inhabitants developed diverse cultures in relation to the rivers, prairies, plains, plateaus, and woodlands. He will discuss how Missouri was native ground to multiple tribal groups, who made it home. Native stories of origin illuminate worlds of wonder in mid-America, and Missourians are seeing them anew.
This event is FREE and recommended for adults and registration is not required. If you have questions, please call the library at (417)532-2148
